Mokuti Etosha Lodge is situated only four minutes drive from the eastern Von Lindequist Gate near Namutoni Fort and is the closest lodge to the Etosha National Park. Located on its own private 4 000 hectare nature reserve, it shares a common border with this fascinating National Park. Upon arrival, a cool, green tropical oasis welcomes guests. Charming thatched buildings and two sparkling pools nestled among the vast indigenous gardens, give credence to the name “Mokuti”, which in Ovambo means “In the forest”.
Leisure activities and facilities abound and include Mokuti’s exclusive spa, two swimming pools, a separate children’s splash pool, two floodlit tennis courts, Pool & Billiard Room, gym, reptile park, walking trails, private airport and professionally guided morning, afternoon or full day open vehicle game drive safaris into Etosha. At night, guests tell tall stories around open fires, after enjoying al fresco dinners served in the African Boma or even under the towering garden trees. As they make their way back to their rooms along winding pathways, they frequently encounter our resident herd of placid bontebok, and the next morning, our squirrels who insist on sharing their breakfast.
